May 26th, 2013 by Marc Comments

The Bone Season is shaping up to be one of the hottest supernatural thrillers around.

Samantha Shannon’s book about a world where clairvoyance is forbidden and one girl uses it for her own ends is making waves and we’re looking forward to getting our hands on it…

Press release:
Bloomsbury have launched the trailer for The Bone Season, the first book in a dazzling new fantasy series being published on 20 August this year. The book is already being developed for film by Andy Serkis’ The Imaginarium Studios. Samantha is a 21 year-old currently completing her finals at Oxford University. A selection of some of amazing advance quotes follow:

‘Truly extraordinary and thrilling.’ Andy Serkis
‘A new breed of women authors are claiming fantasy as their own. Leading the charge is Samantha Shannon.’ Harper’s Bazaar
‘A dark and exquisitely rendered fantasy unlike anything out there. The Bone Season is a must read.’ Kami Garcia, co-author of the Beautiful Creatures series
‘Samantha Shannon has a hugely inventive talent and an imagination with seven league boots. She’s hit the ground running.’ Susan Hill

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
